ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Renaissance Men is a professional vocal ensemble based in Boston, performing in venues and concert halls in New England and across the United States. Like the multi-talented individuals of the Renaissance, our programs feature a wide variety of musical styles and instrumentation with a focus on tenor, baritone, and bass voices.
The Boston choral scene is a vigorous one, teeming with artistic outlets for ensemble performance, but lacking groups devoted to the wealth of repertoire written throughout the centuries for tenor and bass voices. Renaissance Men was formed in January of 2014 as a response to this artistic need. Since their inception, Renaissance Men (RenMen) have entertained New England audiences with their diverse musical choices and multi-talented performers. Comprised of Boston and New York’s most active chamber musicians, educators, and music aficionados, RenMen have paved their way into New England’s cultural landscape with ten concert series, performances of U.S. and world premieres by internationally-celebrated composers, and two album releases.
